“Hairdressing, barbering and beauty businesses in Wales work extremely hard to achieve success, so what better way to recognise and reward their achievements than with an awards dinner where they will be surrounded by some of the best in our industry?

“We received an astonishing number of entries in 2017 and the calibre was also outstanding, so we have high expectations this year. We can’t wait to see what the entries will bring and how local people across Wales will vote for their selected nominees before the winners are revealed in November.”
